"Frost/Nixon," according to press notes, "not only re-creates the on-air [David Frost-Richard Nixon] interview, but the weeks of around-the-world, behind-the-scenes maneuvering between the two men and their camps as negotiations were struck, deals were made and secrets revealed...all leading to the moment when they would sit facing one another in the court of public opinion."

Frank Langella won a Tony Award for his performance as Nixon in the Broadway production. He is currently back on Broadway in the Roundabout's revival of A Man for All Seasons.
